"Puppy Linux, in case you aren't already familiar with it, is a lightweight version of Linux that is designed for portability.

"What's New In This Release
Quickpet is a great addition to Puppy Linux that lets you easily add more programs and drivers with one click. You can access Quickpet by clicking on the icon on the desktop."
